Just Dogs! Gourmet Franchise
Just Dogs! Gourmet is a franchise for a dog bakery and grooming salon. It was founded by Colleen in August 1998. It was when she first brought home her golden retriever puppy, Lucy.
Giving dog treats is a way to train dogs and when she went to the grocery looking for them, she could not find one that didn’t have preservatives in it. She raised her kids with a nutritious diet and she wants to do the same for Lucy. She baked treats for her in her own kitchen and Lucy loved it. She then started getting requests for the treats until she could no longer meet the demands cooking in her small kitchen. Her daughter, who’s also a dog lover, moved her dog grooming business so Colleen could open a dog bakery and grooming.
Their new shop had her own line of exclusive treats, dog merchandise, dog grooming salon, venue for dog birthday parties with a dog playground and includes cakes and ice creams especially made for dogs. They have been featured in the “Today Show” and they started franchising it nationwide in 2003. You may also be interested in my rare dog breeds website if you are interested in this franchise.
